Sawyer T-Meister 160

09/30/2014. Remarks by Walter van Tilborg: "The T-Meister 160 was an original design and fully aerobatic two-seat homebuilt aircraft of John T. Sawyer of Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA. The work on the aircraft was started in January 1992 and the T-Meister 160 (160 for the 160 hp Lycoming O-320-E2D engine) was first flown in December 1998. The aircraft featured a light sweepback on the wings and in the construction the designer/builder used strengthened Piper PA-18 wing spars and a modified (and slightly shortened) Taylorcraft L-2 steel tube fuselage. These were combined with own design metal/fabric covered wings and tail surfaces and the aileron design was influenced by those used in several Sukhoi aerobatic designs. The T-Meister was later available for amateur construction from T-Meister Aircraft and could accept engines in the 150 to 230 hp range."
